Mike Maccagnan Doesn’t Say Much at Pre-Draft News Conference

I am sure there are reasons Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan had a media availability yesterday. I just can’t think of them. Three days before the Draft, no general manager is going to say much of substance. They don’t want to telegraph their team’s plan. What you get are a lot of cliches and generalities along with noncommittal answers on players. Below is a sampling of what Maccagnan had to say.

Not many Draft cliches were spared in the making of that press conference.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say he will be more forthcoming about his thinking after the Draft. It always seems to be that way with general managers for some reason.
